Sweet Flower Collar

Hello my lovely dear friends!

Monday morning and already into the 2nd week of July ... Oh where oh where is the time flying i am wondering...I am in my city, My Bangalore. But i do not recognize it at all.. India is fast developing nation and the billions that live here are welcoming the new trends and life style changes a bit too readily! It has been over a year since i came to my city and all seemed to have changed. Especially the prices. With living costs spiraling exponentially, i am left wondering as to what is the real value of happiness these days?

Anyways, this space is not about price rise right, so let me show you something new i did over the last few days...Sorry for the crumpled look as the top was well worn before this photo shoot and i did not find the iron :(


A closer look at the collar.
I used a 2.0mm hook and mondial cotton thread for making the collar. The pattern is my own tho i drew inspiration from HERE. I changed the flower pattern and did a 2 color effect for it.


 Collar all around and not just at the front...


 My pretty model, who loved the outfit as it is in her favourite colors - PINK n PURPLE :)


A more serious expression before she hopped skipped and jumped away to have fun!

I am not having much time for crafting these days.. What with going shopping, visiting relatives, catching up with friends and eating at my favourite hang-outs.. all managing with 2 small ones in tow.. not an easy task i must tell you..The little man is not playing still in the parks here, a bit of mud and he comes running ..Mamma...che che...ha ha


The lady is having a swinging time tho :)


He finally consents to play a little bit of his slide.. But can you spot the sorry expression? he he


A few clicks from my next project, i am having lots of fun making these Nana squares. Hopefully i ll show it to you guys in a couple of days! 




Till then, have fun..
Keep crafting, keep smiling and do read the below LINK. It has some crochet rules and i agree with all of them TOTALLY!!

Do write in and let me know whats going on in your sunny space :)

Love,
xxx...

  3. I can imagine what you feel when coming back toy our city after long time. I myself find that I am not tuned into my city's rhythm anymore, and feel like a stranger there at times. Only my parents home is still the same :)
    You've done lovely collar, your daughter looks happy and proud having it made by her own Mum :)
    Oh you are always up to some beautiful project, Rajeshwari! I can't wait to see what you come up with!

  4. That's a very pretty collar and looks lovely on your daughter!! :) hope you are having a nice time with your parents!! Yes, India is becoming pricey these days. My cousins from US say that US is cheaper place to stay compared to India whenever they are on annual visit here.
